Three years ago, the daughter of Nancy Evans passed away suddenly. A month later, Lina’s CEO came from London and suggested that they do something positive in her memory. The goal was to celebrate her life, and the best way to do this seemed to be to try to bring joy and happiness to others. Lina’ Project was born!
Lina’s Project is a multi-cultural venture with children from many different countries: places like Morocco, Algeria, and other African countries, countries from the Eastern bloc as well as children from Belgium. Within the project we propose summer activities for under-privileged children here in Brussels. That may include day-camp activities in the Brussels area, over-night camps in the Ardennes and also up at the coast. Day camp activities often include day trips outside of Brussels, and activities are chosen that the children would otherwise not have the opportunity to try such as: circus camp, cooking, adventure, majorettes, science and nature and all sorts of sports.
The project is inclusive as at least half of the participants are girls. The families that benefit are all on welfare with very limited revenues. The project is carried on in co-operation with our long-term partner organization, Nativitas.
Thanks to Lina’s Project, these children enjoy the summer. What a great way to spread the light!
